We all know I love me some Pinterest…
but you can easily fall into the trap of EVERYTHING needs to be PRETTY.
Enter my makeup collection. I wouldn’t say I’m a makeup whore, but I was acquiring a fair number of lipsticks and eyeshadows that weren’t fitting in my regular container. Money was tight, but honestly I just wasn’t finding what I wanted anywhere.
Enter an Amazon box, and Duct Tape.
I came up with this. The Amazon box already had flaps that folded in to give the new “compartments” I made some stability. Then, I just duct taped the be-jeepers out of a few well-cut patitions. The Amazon box fit SO perfectly, it was
like a dream. This particular drawer is REALLY shallow, so regular containers just weren’t working.
Does anyone see this drawer? No, just me – and I love me some cardboard and duct tape.
That isn’t to say that I don’t love pretty — but I love having an organized way to store my makeup even more. I love my organized home!
I also used mounting putty to keep it in the same spot. That way I could line up my lipsticks in the front and not having them fall down. I also bsaically have another full extra compartment in the back to keep stuff. We all know how I love extra compartments, right?
